Esotericism Part 4 Sec 06





''If you have not ploughed with my heifer, you would not find out my riddle.'' [Judges 14:18 in relation to Samson's riddle]. Think on it relative to what the 'mill ' represents. Together with the remaining parts of that same riddle. Found within. Clue 'A churning in relation to a grinding'.

The Symbolism of which is represented by ‘Grooves’, [key]. Especially those in the ‘Grand Gallery’. Or in the ‘Kings’ chamber’, i.e., Higher self, in the positive sense. Common parlance... ‘To plough ones furrow’. Represented by the... ‘Great /lessor Bear’ constellation.

Question. Which came first; the naming of the constellations or this 'subject'.

"Will the wild ox consent to serve you. Or will he spend the night at your manger?" Job.39:9. ['Book of Job' / Melissa Lees].

'Wild' in relation to 'domesticated' a means?

And/or: ''If you have pulled this card. you are asked to embody your star consciousness. The star of your being is rising....'' [Card 17 -Sothis- 'The Anubis Oracle'].

Its old name = Septentriones. ‘Seven ploughing oxen’. [See also 'New View Over Atlantis'. Chapters one/two, in relation to 'Notch' symbolism], i.e.,"and on a bank leading up to a mountain ridge, or down to a ford, the track cut deep so as to form a guiding notch...." OR " in a mountain pass the road cut deeply at the highest place straight through the ridge, to show as a notch afar off." [Emphasis...this readers]. That link to 'Hook' symbolism.

"Such a division of the 7 into these two constituent principles, the spiritual 3 and the material 4, was used time and again..." [Taken from 'Mystery of Numbers'].

"Ships have long been said to plough the sea, and ploughs to sail the earth. In a variant of the same ancient metaphor the modern French faucher le grand pre for sailing is literally to reap, or to mow, the big field; the reapers too leave a wake behind them. The German lexicographer Max Miller, last century, related 'oar' to a root by which it means 'as it were the plough-share of the water'; he added that the English word plough, the Slavonic ploug, has been identified with the Sanskrit plava...and with the Greek ploion = ship." [Taken from chapter 4, entitled ''Ploughing the Sea'' from the book 'The Book of Babel: Words and the Way We See Things' by N. Lewis].

'Field of Offerings' or 'Field of Reeds'?

11th hour?

long or short?

Analogy: "Of the four shrines enclosing the sarcophagus, the outermost {whose roof recalls the double Sed Festival with its symbolism of rebirth} is entirely of gilt wood decorated with Djed columns {the symbol of Osiris} alternating with knots of Isis on a background of blue enamel. In the narrow corridor, separating the walls of the outermost shrine from the one inside it, were found the 'steering oars' for celestial navigation." [Page 90 'Egyptian Mysteries' / L. Lamy].


Define the parts to understand the whole {mindset}.


'Place of Rowing'.



The 'middle' way.

Analogy: ''Night and day, summer and winter, left and right, up and down, are all natural pairs, neither one being dominant over the other. That is the main objective of following the Middle Way, a road of total balance, both within and without, physical and spiritual....This has been referred to as the Bridge of the Sword Blade, or the Knife Edge, and turns up in the Arthurian legends. The path to the light has always been narrow, crossing the Abyss by a slendor and shaking rainbow bridge, built only of your Will to cross. Below is what you have 'evolved' from, the cast- off skins of your previous beings, and on your back, like the Fool of the Tarot deck, is a satchel with all the good you may achieve, HUNG from your 'wand' {'hazel'?}, and bound with a cord of your intentions.'' [Page 151 'The Path Through the Labyrinth' / M. Green].

'Gordian Knot'.

Question. The Bridge of Sirat?

'Mountain HIGH. Valley LOW'.

Landscape equivalent of something: "Gebel el-Silsila or Gebel Silsileh "Chain of Mountains" or "Series of Mountains"; Egyptian: ẖny, Khenyt, Kheny or Khenu - "The Place of Rowing"; German: Dschabal as-Silsila - "Ruderort", or "Ort des Ruderns" - "Place of Rowing"; Italian: Gebel Silsila - "Monte della Catena" - "Upstream Mountain Chain") is 65 km north of Aswan in Upper Egypt, where the cliffs on both sides close to the narrowest point along the length of the entire Nile. The location is between Edfu in the north towards Lower Egypt and Kom Ombo in the south towards Upper Egypt. The name Kheny (or sometimes Khenu) means "The Place of Rowing". It was used as a major quarry site on both sides of the Nile from at least the 18th Dynasty to Greco-Roman times. Silsila is famous for its New Kingdom stelai and cenotaphs. '' [Wiki].

N.B. "Mount Sinai is a 2,285-metre (7,497 ft), moderately high mountain near the city of Saint Catherine in the region known today as the Sinai Peninsula. It is surrounded on all sides by higher peaks in the mountain range of which it is a part."

Try Hoar's Way for an alternative viewpoint.

Razor-back? and/or the 'back' of a a means?

And/or: ''It is the 'mountains brought low' in order that 'every valley should be filled'...'' {Luke 3:5}. Taken from the book 'Her=Bak: Egyptian Initiate' Page 364].

As one example: "Applied symbolique can be compared to the Bridge of Sirat in the Islamic Quran. It is as wide as a razor's edge, on either side is a yawning gulf of perdition {'void'?}. One precipice is the mentality of logical or mathematical reason - the other of superstition.'' [Page 31 'The Egyptian Miracle: An Introduction to the Wisdom of the Temple' / R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz].

''Crossing the Sirat Bridge depends on everybody's light. Some will cross it in the twinkling of an eye; some, like lightning; some, like a falling star; some, like a running horse. He who has very little light will creep facedown. His hands and feet will slip, and he will cling to it again. At long last, he will break free from it by creeping and creeping.'' [Tabarani / Wiki].

'See' {twinkling?} anything?

The holy mountain at Jebel Barkal. Why? Flat top?

" I had wanted to visit the sites linked to the Soleb Lions (also known as the ‘Prudhoe Lions’) at the British Museum ever since childhood. I would hold my grandfather’s hand as we stood and playfully growled at these two realistic-looking red granite lions. The lions had been moved at least once in antiquity – along with six black granite rams – {'twentyfour' in total. 'Twentysix' when two lions included?} - to Gebel Barkal {'Fourth'  cataract} in Sudan by the kings of Kush. They had originally been carved during the reign of Amenhotep III for his Temple of Amun, located between the Second and Third Nile Cataracts at Soleb. Various inscriptions had been added to them during the reigns of Amenhotep IV, Tutankhamun, Ay, and the Meroitic king Amanislo (the Ethiopian king Amonasro in Verdi’s opera Aïda). It is widely believed to be Amanislo (c.260-250 BC) who moved them from Soleb to Gebel Barkal.... The ancient settlement around Gebel Barkal was known as Napata, and it was one of the most important sites for at least two of the defining eras of the Kingdom of Kush. Situated around 370 kilometres north of Khartoum, the flat-topped ‘Pure Mountain’ (as the ancient Egyptians called it) is 1.5 kilometres north of the Nile. It has a very distinctive free-standing pinnacle on the southern edge, which bears a striking resemblance to a colossal uraeus (the stylised rearing cobra used as a symbol of sovereignty and divine royalty by the ancient Egyptians) protecting the god Amun inside the holy mountain.."

During the 18th dynasty the Egyptians switched from limestone to sandstone. At this time the quarries at Gebelein were not yielding as much limestone as before. Gebel el-Silsila became a source of sandstone. The use of this stone allowed for the use of larger architraves.
Many of the talatats used by Akhenaten were quarried from here, and used in buildings at Luxor and Amarna. A stela from the early part of Akhenaten's reign shows the king offering to Amun beneath the winged sun-disk. The inscription records that stone was cut for the great Benben of Harakhty in Thebes. Akhenaten's sculptor Bek oversaw the opening of a stone quarry here."

Talatat are stone blocks of standardized size (c. 27 by 27 by 54 cm, corresponding to ​1⁄2 by ​1⁄2 by 1 ancient Egyptian cubits) used during the 18th dynasty reign of the Pharaoh Akhenaten in the building of the Aton temples at Karnak and Akhetaten (modern Amarna). The standardized size and their small weight made construction more efficient. Their use may have begun in the second year of Akhenaten's reign. After the Amarna Period talatat construction was abandoned, apparently not having withstood the test of time." [Wiki].

Hall of Karnac made of sandstone. Coincidence or a meaningful one?

Question. Who 'created' Karnak?

Sidfe note: "The ‘pinnacle as uraeus’ concept is depicted in a wall scene inside the rock-cut Temple of Mut of Napata. Mut and a ram-headed version of Amun are seen seated inside a shrine representing the mountain; the uraeus, wearing a solar disc, projects out from the front much like the pinnacle above it. Further into the interior of the temple we see the 25th {'Twentyfive'} Dynasty king Taharqo depicted on two recently restored bas relief wall panels, in yellow ochre and Egyptian blue on gypsum mortar. The king is shown making an offering to differing forms of Amun – a demonstration of his rule over the Two Lands. On the left (downstream journey) wall he is offering to the human-headed Amun of Karnak, and on the right (upstream journey) wall he is offering to the ram-headed Amun of Gebel Barkal, who was known as ‘Amun of Napata who lives inside the Pure Mountain’.....The location {of the lions} had been documented by several early 19th-century visitors as being near to the north-west outer wall of the Royal Palace of Napata (Reisner B1200)."

The Short Way?

Something hinted at: "Our adept means hear to speak of the first sulphur, which is the gold of the sages, the green, unripe fruit of the tree of knowledge. While the Latin phrase betrays some disappointment relative to a normal result, which many would like very much to obtain, it is because by means of this 'sulphur' the transmutation can no longer be hoped for. Indeed the philosophical gold, is not the 'stone', and Philalethes carefully warns the student that it is only its first matter. And since this sulphur principle, according to the same author, requires an uninterrupted work of approximately 'one hundred and fifty' days {150}, it is logical to think that such a result could not satisfy the artist who anticipated reaching the 'elixir' in one bound, as it can happen in the short way." [Page 340 'The Dwellings of the Philosopher' / Fulcanelli].

Thebes/Karnak ?


From a different perspective {from a different 'angle' - 90 or 180?}: "The Pineal gland, the dynamo that runs the organism of man, is composed of 'sand' plus a cement, an ointment, a smear, found, as has been explained, in the spinal cord {djed?} -  also to some extent, in all parts of the body. When this 'cement' is wasted, as the Prodigal Son wasted his substance in riotous living, there being a deficiency in this precious 'oil'....He lacks the sand or grit....The mineral salts of blood were called sand or salt by the Greeks. The cell salts that are found in the pineal gland are chiefly potassium phosphate....In Revelation, the pineal gland is called ''the white stone''. In Biochemistry, the phosphate of potassium is given as the birth salt of Aries people. Those who build their house upon a rock are they who conserve the substance that unites with the sand - cell salts - and thus form the 'rock' upon which a body may be built....'Rock of ages, cleft for me, let me hide myself in thee'..." [Page 141/2 'God-Man: The Word Made Flesh / G. Carey and Inez Perry].

'Cleft' = ''crack''?

Carved from sandstone rock FACE. Entry to which can ONLY be achieved along an old dried up river bed between two steep cliff faces. Question. ''Facade'' / ''H'' / ''six'' links? Watford GAP?

REFRESHER: "We don't know the purpose of the white quartz pebbles. There found in mortuary context from pre-historic periods onward and also medieval cemeteries. There's a passage in the Bible - Revelations- about a person who has found Christ is given a white stone - and in that - a new name." [Same program].

Something ''Set in stone''?

'Peter' ?

And/or: "In Bible alchemy, Libra represents Reuben, the first son of Jacob. Reuben means Vision of the Sun. In the symbolism of the New Testament, Libra corresponds to the disciple Peter. Peter is derived from Petra, a stone or mineral." [Page 35 'The Zodiac and the Salts of Salvation'].

Corner stone?


Someone's new name?

Side note: Left – Knot Amulet. Middle – Meskhetyu Instrument. Right – Ovoid Stone.

''On the knot amulet, Hatshepsut's name throne name, Maatkare, and her expanded name with Amun are inscribed. The Meskhetyu Instrument was used during a funerary ritual, Opening of the Mouth, to revive the deceased. On the Ovoid Stone, hieroglyphics was inscribed on it. The hieroglyphics translate to "The Good Goddess, Maatkare, she made [it] as her monument for her father, Amun-Re, at the stretching of the cord over Djeser-djeseru-Amun, which she did while alive." The stone may have been used as a hammering stone.'' [Wiki / Hatshepsut].

''Set in Stone''? Help section to enlarge.


Flat top ? 'East-west'? 90 degrees? Queen of the 'horizon'?

Continued: Understanding the above, gives clues {as a 'lead' i.e., as an example by way of the Jackal headed god}- to the information within Mr Bauval and co. book 'Black Genesis', an elongated hill in the S/W corner of the Egyptian desert..."a flattened top with a very noticeable depression or notch in the middle" what the author calls ' Horizon Hill ', and that link to the 'Horizon' hieroglyph, which as he says "was used to denote 'horizon' or, more specifically, the Place of the Sunrise." [Page 142, same book].

A working example {in the present tense and moment of the WORD}: ''I do podcasts about theories and stuff - weird and wonderfull stuff....One of my theories is that i believe hieroglyphs are actually from the future and their basically just emoji's - because we are getting to the point where our words are getting shorter as when we send text messages etc....So i think the pyramids are from the future and its hieroglyphs are just emoji's. Thats how we are going to talk in the future because we cant be bothered to write.'' [Scarlett - 'Pilgrimage' / BBC2 / 2022].


From a different perspective {and/or a work in progress}: ''Gurdjieff's legominism, i.e., a symbol that somehow encapsulates the meaning of what it is that is to be conveyed to the 'future'. Examples of architectural 'logominisms' are the pyramids of Egypt, the hierothesion of Antiochus and the shrine at Arsemia.'' [Page 257 'Magi: The Quest for a Secret Tradition' / A. Gilbert].

The earliest known 'horizon' symbol. Ibis between two stork birds. Question. What type of ''rock''?

Apply the above to define the following {mind set?}: "There are many pictures of men brandishing spears, which may only represent one figure drawn on many occasions. There are oxen yoked to ploughs, war chariots and wagons, men blowing {'drinking'?} curved horns and people dancing or walking in procession. These can never be completely identified, but the aim is clear. They are part of a seasonal religious ceremony. In some cases animal figures are thought to represent the beasts offered to special gods at special sacrifices {'feast of fools'?} - while the ashes of great fires {death/rebirth?}, below the rocks on which the pictures are engraved, probably indicate the sites of ritual feasts, in the Homeric manner....To a rather later period belong pictures of axes, swords, wheels and sun discs...." [Page 85 'GogMagog'].

Quantity or Quality?

Side note: ''In the ancient world of Egypt {and elsewhere?} - all is symbol, every gesture of life, each ritual of cult, each stela, each monument, every hieroglyph, its colour and emplacement, each figuration, the shape {'form'} of every common object - all obey the law of wisdom that situates each thing in the harmonic site of its cosmic nature....As specific idea, as figure of speech or imagined figuration, the symbol is always more concrete than the idea it evokes. Thus the means, the tool, symbolizes a state or a quality....For example the 'seat' or the throne evoke different ideas of elevation, one physical the other of power; yet the seat in general also evokes the groundwork or foundation. The scythe evokes the function of arresting, of causing to cease, as the sword evokes the function of piercing through or else of separating or cleaving....The staff evokes the idea of striking and punishing, but the act of striking with a staff can evoke a cabalistic idea of the staff itself i.e., Moses striking the 'rock' with a 'wand'. Generally speaking, symbolism is the evocation of an intelligence words can only paraphrase and not directly transcribe." [Page 31-33 'The Egyptian Miracle' / R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz].

Quantity/Quality as a means....?

'Head' and 'feet' in stylised form. [The wooden object that is - not the chap in the tie]. Try Part 1. Question. Aries/Pisces?

{C}alliope - Chief muse.

Continued: "Caroline, you may not be aware of this, but your name begins with the letter associated with the balance of the number three. Balance is a grace of spirit {'male' or 'female'?}. This is why the horizon stone played such an important part in the Egyptian mysteries. The hieroglyph depicts the meeting of Sun and Earth...This symbol is the only hieroglyphic on the outer wall of the Great Pyramid...The name given to the pyramid was 'Akhet Khufu', which meant ''horizon of Khufu'' - this later term was misunderstood by later Egyptologists, who turned it into the name Cheops. This pregnant symbol is {also?} located above the passageway which pierces into the rock foundations of the vast structure. As a symbol, it survived into modern times - as the symbol for Libra, the cosmic balance, which now consists of three elements...When he had drawn the sigil, he ran the back of his pencil {'lead' link} through the curvature {'arc' / Uas link?} of space between the solar disc and the horizon of earth...'The invisible {unknown quantity?} space is just as important as the Sun and Earth. Do you see how even the most simple-seeming of the arcane symbols are steeped in hermetic antiquity?' ['The Zelator'. Italics/parenthesis, this readers].


Carolingian Dynasty?

Follow the title of the book to see it from its broader {horizon?} - point of view. That personal inner one.

A working example: ''It was just good measure to use it well''. [Clive James - on life].

"The Oseberg ship itself is decorated with a more traditional style of animal interlace that does not feature the gripping beast motif. However, five carved wooden animal-head posts were found in the ship, and the one known as the Carolingian animal-head post is decorated with gripping beasts, as are other grave goods from the ship. The Carolingian head represents a snarling beast, possibly a wolf, with surface ornamentation in the form of interwoven animals that twist and turn as they are gripping and snapping."

''The glyph for Libra originally represented a yoke, which I thought was fascinating, in the light of Saturn's exaltation there. I always used to think of the symbol as representing a 'bump in the road', so perhaps Libra brings out the best of Saturn when 'the bumps in the road' of relationship happen." [Page 76 'Saturn, Chiron and the Centaurs']. Try ''yoke''.

''Mr Bump of the Mr Men characters is blue in colour and covered in bandages.''

And/or: "In Leo and Virgo lay now the long forgotten asterism Fahne, of which Ideler wrote: 'The Flag is a constellation of the heavens, one part in Leo, one part in Virgo. Has many stars. On the iron {the arrowhead of the staff} in front one; on the flag two; on every fold of the flag, one...Brown repeats a Euphratean inscription: 'The constellation of the 'Yoke' - 'like a flag floated' - although he claims no connection here, and associates the Yoke with Capricorn." [Page 255 'Star Names and Their Meaning'].
Interpret those keys to 'see' / connect {yoke?} something further - in relation to the Giza complex. And/or Homers Secret Illiad.

Try ''Libra'' to see if you agree/disagree.

REFRESHER: "The word 'conscience' {''con-science''} contains the idea of balance, for it implies "simultaneous knowing," i.e.,knowledge of the facts of the two scales suspended at the extremities of the beam of the balance. Conscience is neither a product nor a function of character. It is above it. And it is here - and only here - that there begins and there is found the domain of freedom." [Letter viii 'Justice' from the book 'Meditations on the Tarot'].

Memnon. 'Sarcophagus' / 'Karnak' / 'Turquoise' / 'garment' to enlarge.


A working example: "As Dorn interprets it, this vacillating between the opposites and being tossed back and forth means being contained in the opposites. They become a vessel in which what was previously now one thing and now another floats vibrating, so that the painful suspension between opposites gradually changes into a bilateral activity of the point in the center. This is the 'liberation from opposites,' the nirdvandva of Hindu philosophy, though not really a philosophical development. The experience of the opposites has great psychological significance, for it can be associated with the development of consciousness. This uroboric state can be seen in the early life of a 'child'.....At the birth of the consciousness of mankind stands the experience of the opposites, and the first pair of opposites to appear at the dawn of humanity must have been the primal division between life and death...the tension between the two....the gateway to consciousness.'' [ Page 14 'The Lover and the Serpent' / Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee].

Side not: Speculation 'rules the roost' in Ancient Aliens: ''The Power of Three'' {Series 5, episode 14}. Understand this subject to get as close as one can to answer all those convoluted questions and answers - if only in relation to ''three''.

Metal of the mind.

Side note: "It is impossible to study any single system of 'worship' throughout the world without being struck by the peculiar persistence of the triple number in regard to divinity; whether as a group of deities, a triformed or 3-headed god, a mysterious trinity, a deity of three powers, or a family relationship of 3 persons such as Father, Mother and Son...." [Page 16 'Occult Fundamentals and Spiritual Unfoldment. Vol 1].

Continued: Abu Ruash also has that same 'formation', of which a similar symbol can be found above the North entrance of none other than the Great Pyramid. The common factor between all being Mr Djedefre, or more importantly, before those first impressions take hold...what Djedefre represents, i.e.,elder relative to younger. Djedefre in relation to Menkaure. North relative to South. The 'southern' end of which encompassed that 'offset' pyramid. The beginning or start of something.

Question. ''Compass'' in relation to 'encompass' / 'compassion'?

seti 1As also mentioned in that same well researched book [if only from the standard [exoteric] point of view, i.e.,without including this subject].... it was the following Dynasty, i.e.,5th...that the 'Horizon' symbol became ingrained. Which gives clues as to Mr Djedefres [and therefore by implication, his families], true status, if only within an understanding of something. Recall what Djedefre represents. That understanding was finally 'realized' in the 5th.

'A grain of wisdom'.

Question. How many grains make a cake?

Funerary cake?

Hence the link to the first 'religious' texts ever found anywhere. The Pyramid texts. What Mr Bauval refers to as the 'Horizon' hieroglyph, others call the 'Son of'. But not yet with that 'full' understanding, i.e.,'heart' or 'bosom' link. ['lower'/ 'higher' link]. Hence the link to the 'sun' in the middle of those two 'points', regardless of whether they be 'mountains' or 'pillars'. Recall what the 'sun' represents, [besides the obvious]. Think about it, relative to what other symbol was included within, non other than King Unas cartouche.

"The destiny of man, as we have said, is to make or create himself. He is, and he will be the son of his works, both for time and eternity." Quote by E. Levi.


A. Crowley. What's the common factor? + 'Thumb' / 'Pillars' to enlarge.


Analogy of same {principles?}- that very first one - {written in the stars?}: "Homer confirms in Book 19 that Achilles is an astronomical newcomer when he is compared to Odysseus, whose constellation Bootes, had been in the skies for an eternity. Odysseus says: 'Achilles - mightiest of all the Greeks in battle {'struggle' link}, you are better than i, and that more than a little, but in counsel i am much before you, for i am older and of greater knowledge'. Homer is here stating, that Odysseus personal star, Arcturus, is not as bright and powerful as that of Achilles {Sirius and Canis Major}, but is much 'older', for it has been visible from the northern hemisphere since time immemorial." ['Homer's Secret Iliad'].

Elder/younger = Higher/lower? All as a means....?

And/or: ''Homer characterized the constellation as ''late in setting''...Minsheu of the 17th century wrote: 'Bootes, or the Carman, is a slow moving star, seated in the north pole'...And all this because as the figure sets in a perpendicular position, eight hours are consumed in its downward progress {'right angle'?} and even then the hand of Bootes never disappears below the horizon {'raised' hand?} - a fact more noticeable in early days than now. The reverse takes place however, at its rising i.e.,in a horizontal position...hence ''all at once'' {'simultaneous'?} of Aratos...The Arabs referred to it as the Digger, or Tearer, analogous to the classic Trencher in the vineyard...but this could be in error {Dionysus link?}. " ['Star Names and Their Meaning' under Bootes].

''Car'' / ''chariot''?

'Triangular' head gear?

Can u see it?

And/or: ''If you were Celtic, you might know of a constellation called Hu Gardarn {'The  mighty'}. Includes Bootes right across the night sky to Auriga - with the Gt. Bear in the middle''. Also known as the 'Plough' by the Celts, a crocodile by the Egyptians and a Hippo by the Mesopotamians.'' ['Mirthy' / July 2022].

''Hu Gadarn (Hu the Mighty) is a supposed Welsh legendary figure who appears in several of a series of Welsh Triads produced by the Welsh antiquarian and literary forger Iolo Morganwg. These triads, which Iolo put forth as medieval works, present Hu as a culture hero of the ancient Britons who introduced ploughing.''

Side note: The story {method?} of Troy {Great Bear} - in relation to the Precession. Orion = Hector and Paris. Achilles = Dog star. His bright armour in relation to 'electrum'. Anything?

Question. What does ''19'' represent?

"Analogy of same,i.e.,in the spiritual sense of the word: Different time; different author..."Formally it may be said, my whole being was possessed by egoism. All my manifestations and experiences flowed from my vanity......and from then on there gradually arose in me that ''something'' which has brought the whole of me to the unshakable conviction that, apart from the vanities of life, there exists a ''something else'' which must be the aim and ideal of every more or less thinking man, and that it is only this something else which may make a man really happy and give him real values, instead of the illusory ''goods'' with which in ordinary life he is always and in everything full." [Chapter 10 'Meetings with Remarkable Men'. Mentioned elsewhere].

That logic again. That logic that defines and verifies this subject. REGARDLESS of whether it be fact or fiction.

Hebrew equivalent = the word...’Sefirah’, [ ‘Mystical Shape of the Godhead'. Chapter three. G.Scholem ]. Or the Pagan ‘Dykes’, [ unconscious aspect ]. Christian equivalent = ‘Prayer’, i.e., benefit of. In relation to...a repetitive ‘habit’ / discipline. Three examples of same...but from different perspectives. Spot those common links...’The art of True Healing’. By I. Regardie...’Esoteric Healing’. By A. Hopking...’Born of Water and Spirit’. By A. Lohr.

A working example: ''The name Jason is a typically masculine name that is believed to have Greek and Hebrew origins. Jason is a classic and traditional Greek name. In Greek, the name means “healer.” This is from the Greek word “iaomai” which means “to heal.” The origin of the name can also be traced to Greek mythology.

The story goes that Jason, a great Thessalian hero, led the Argonauts, a band of heroes in Greek mythology, on a quest for the Golden Fleece, in order to get back the throne from his Uncle Pelias, who overthrew Jason’s father as the king of Ilocos. Jason also married Medea, a sorceress who helped him get the Golden Fleece and murder his uncle.

In Hebrew, Jason means “the Lord is salvation.” In the bible story, Jason housed Paul and Silas when they were in need of shelter. In English, Jaye is a feminine variation to the name Jason.'' [Internet].

Or even ‘Sister Wendy’..and therefore by implication...her profession. As an example of same. Think about it. Together with 'The Brotherhood of the Common Life'. Mentioned elsewhere.

That link to the ten Commandments of Hebrew fame or Jurisprudence and relation to the Sharia of Islam culture to name but a few. All encompassed and re-evaluated in what Mr Al-Ghazali describes as... "the lowland of servile conformism the highland of independent investigation { 'Jurisprudence' link}''... In relation to striking a balance. To achieve an equilibrium. In all things that we do...and come to believe in.

Neolithic equivalent of that unknown …yet to be realized aspect…that is now a known one. i.e.,rising from the back of the head, on limestone. Recall what its two main features, snake and ears, are symbolic of. What they represent. Found s/e Turkey. Close to Gobekli-Tepe.

Back of the 'head' ? Try ''64'' for something extra. Part 2.

The benefit of the routine of getting used to the positives as opposed to those negatives...on a day by day basis. That potential of. In relation to a ’Journey’. Hence the link to the word [and its application]... 'meditation'. Its most basic interpretation,[some may say crudely] could be... if one has to 'focus' on anything, then focus on the 'positive' stuff as opposed to its alternative. Chooses are made every day, whether its learning something new, or still coming to terms with something 'old', ['youngest' and/or 'eldest' links]. That 'chose' one way or the other has to be made, consciously or otherwise. Whether we want to, or not. The only difference, is that this subject makes you aware of that fact... and its supposed relevance along a path or 'journey'. Represented by higher/lower.

Side note: ''So lets go Aurora hunting with our positive hats on.'' [Michaela Strachan / 'Under The Xmas Sky' / BBC2 / 2018].

Side note: The English word 'focus' comes from the Latin for 'fireplace'. ['The Chase' / ITV / 31.1.22].

Hestia to enlarge.

Symbolic of the word ‘Treasure’. As an example...The ‘Copper scrolls’ were found {''AT the back of a cave''} alongside the ‘Dead sea scrolls’. The ’treasure’, [ in their opinion ] that which was found within that ‘Inner landscape’ of those words within those pages rather than in the physical sense...something that might be found...buried. A subtle link to exoteric/esoteric and/or physical/spiritual differences.

A new city found when looking for Tutankhamuns mortuary temple {death/rebirth?}. The blue stuff found within it. Enlarged throughout.

Each individual would see the word ‘treasure’ in a different light. Another example could be... "The story of Gilgamesh, the fourth king of Uruk, is in part about what people felt as they adapted to city living. This strange and wonderful story was lost for thousands of years until 1872, when George Smith, a scholar at the British museum, announced he had deciphered tablets excavated in the library of the last Assyrian king. Inscribed on Lapis lazuli, it had been locked up in the temple of Venus inside a copper box." [Chapter 15, 'The Sacred History'. Mentioned elsewhere].

And/or..."Give me a copper coin and I'll tell you a golden story,'' is in part responsible for the more popular title of the Golden Ass. This may be so, but we would also suggest that there is an alchemical tinge to this gold. That it is indicative of pure and priceless Mysteries concealed beneath the surface of the tale." [Extract taken from part 4, 'The Rose Cross and the Goddess'. Mentioned elsewhere].

Coincidence or a meaningful one?

Refresher: ''The connection of the Lapis with immortality is attested from very early times. Ostanes {4 BC} speaks of 'the Nile stone that has a spirit'. The Lapis is the panacea, the universal medicine, the alexipharmic, the tincture that transmutes base metals into gold and gravel into precious stones....It cures melancholy etc...'' [Page 101 'Alchemical Studies'].

Sad or joy? Bean ears? HOST? What about 'feet'?

'Spirit' or 'Soul' or both?

''The fineness of a precious metal object (coin, bar, jewelry, etc.) represents the weight of fine metal therein, in proportion to the total weight which includes alloying base metals and any impurities. Alloy metals are added to increase hardness and durability of coins and jewelry, alter colors, decrease the cost per weight, or avoid the cost of high-purity refinement. For example, copper is added to the precious metal silver to make a more durable alloy for use in coins, housewares and jewelry. Coin silver, which was used for making silver coins in the past, contains 90% silver and 10% copper, by mass. Sterling silver contains 92.5% silver and 7.5% of other metals, usually copper, by mass.''

Side note: ''Mistletoe is the common name for obligate hemiparasitic plants in the order Santalales. They are attached to their host tree or shrub by a structure called the haustorium, through which they extract water and nutrients from the host plant.

The name mistletoe originally referred to the species Viscum album (European mistletoe, of the family Santalaceae in the order Santalales); it is the only species native to the British Isles and much of Europe. A related species with red rather than white fruits, Viscum cruciatum, occurs in Southwest Spain and Southern Portugal, as well as in Morocco in North Africa and in southern Africa.''

Continued: ''The word "carob" comes from Middle French carobe (modern French caroube), which borrowed it from Arabic خَرُّوبٌ (kharrūb, "locust bean pod"),[8] which ultimately borrowed it perhaps from Akkadian language kharubu or Aramaic kharubha, or related to Hebrew kharuv.[9] Ceratonia siliqua, the scientific name of the carob tree, derives from the Greek kerátiοn κεράτιον "fruit of the carob" (from keras κέρας "horn"), and Latin siliqua "pod, carob". In English, it is also known as "St. John's bread"[10][a] and "locust tree"[12] (not to be confused with African locust bean).[13] The latter designation also applies to several other trees from the same family. The carat, a unit of mass for gemstones, and a measurement of purity for gold, takes its name from the Greek word for a carob seed, keration, via the Arabic word, qīrāṭ.''

''Holy fruit''?

The carob (/ˈkɛrəb/ KERR-əb; Ceratonia siliqua) is a flowering evergreen tree or shrub in the Caesalpinioideae sub-family of the legume family, Fabaceae. It is widely cultivated for its edible pods, and as an ornamental tree in gardens and landscapes. The carob tree is native to the Mediterranean region and the Middle East.[1][2] Portugal is the largest producer of carob, followed by Italy and Morocco. In the Mediterranean Basin, extended to the southern Atlantic coast of Portugal (i.e. the Algarve region) and the Atlantic northwestern Moroccan coast, carob pods were often used as animal feed and in times of famine, as "the last source of [human] food in hard times".[3] The ripe, dried, and sometimes toasted pod is often ground into carob powder, which was sometimes used as an ersatz cocoa powder, especially in the 1970s natural food movement.[4] The powder and chips can be used as a chocolate alternative in most recipes.''

Side note: ''Chocolate was the main ingredient of xocoatl, a beverage of the Aztecs.'' ['The Chase'].

Continued: ''The origin of the troy weight system is unknown. Although the name probably comes from the Champagne fairs at Troyes, in northeastern France,[11] the units themselves may be of more northern origin.[citation needed] English troy weights were nearly identical to the troy weight system of Bremen. (The Bremen troy ounce had a mass of 480.8 British Imperial grains.)[9]

An alternative suggestion is that the weights come from the Muslim domains by way of the Gold Dirhem (47.966 British Imperial grains), in the manner that King Offa's weights were derived from the silver Dirhem (about 45.0 British grains).

Side note: ''The name drachma is derived from the verb δράσσομαι (drássomai, "(I) grasp").[n 3] It is believed that the same word with the meaning of "handful" or "handle" is found in Linear B tablets of the Mycenean Pylos.[3][n 4] Initially a drachma was a fistful (a "grasp") of six oboloí or obeloí (metal sticks, literally "spits") used as a form of currency as early as 1100 BC and being a form of "bullion": bronze, copper, or iron ingots denominated by weight. A hoard of over 150 rod-shaped obeloi was uncovered at Heraion of Argos in Peloponnese. Six of them are displayed at the Numismatic Museum of Athens.''

Continued: ''According to Watson, troy relates to a dialect word troi (balance). Then troy weight is a style of weighing, like auncel or bismar weights, or other kindred methods. The troy weight then refers to weighing of small precious or potent goods, such as bullion and medicines.

The pennyweight symbol is dwt. One pennyweight weighs 24 grains and 20 pennyweights make one troy ounce.[15] Because there were 12 troy ounces in the old troy pound, there would have been 240 pennyweights to the pound (mass) – just as there were 240 pennies in the original pound-sterling. However, prior to 1526, English pound sterling was based on the tower pound, which is 1516 of a troy pound. The d in dwt stands for denarius, the ancient Roman coin that equates loosely to a penny. The symbol d for penny can be recognized in the form of British pre-decimal pennies, in which pounds, shillings, and pence were indicated using the symbols £, s, and d, respectively.''

A working example: " The Catalogue of Ships {'glass' ones?} is said to be the oldest part of the Iliad, but it brings a mixed response from readers.

Something extra: The mystery of 'creation' are found at three main centers: Heliopolis, Memphis and Thebes: The Osirian myth, which reigned on earth at the beginning of time, signs each site with one of its episodes: it is by the mouth of Tanis that the coffin of Osiris, murdered by his brother Seth, was washed into the sea. It is in Coptos that, through the celestial winds {southern ones?}, Isis learned of the death of her spouse, and it was in Byblos that she found the sarcophagus of Osiris, around which a unique 'tree' had grown. And it is in the marshes of the Delta that Wadjet, the female divinity of the North, secretly raised the 'young' child Horus who was later to engage his eternal cycle of combat with his brother Seth in order to reconquer his 'fathers' heritage.'' [Page 24/5 'The Temples of Karnak' / R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz].

Side note: It is in the Nile Delta that the Children of Israel began their odyssey.

And/or: ''Just as the name Amun-Re links Amun with the sun god, so too, as Amun-Min-Bull-of-his-Mother, he is united with one of the oldest  Egyptian gods, Min, who was worsipped together with Isis, at the important cult center of Coptos in Upper Egypt. From this town the ancient Egyptians used to make their way into the desert region along the Wadi Hammamat, to the quarries which provided rich sources of gold, diorite, schist and other valuable stones; and Min himself was honoured as Lord of these hill countries.''

A working example: ''When the sperm drop falls into the womb, it represents the First Substance. When the embryo has four strata, it represents the elements and the natures. When the members appear, the outward members like the head, the hands, the stomach, the private part, and the feet represent the seven climes. The INWARD members like the lungs, the brain, the kidney, the heart, the gallbladder, the liver, and the spleen represent the 'seven' heavens. The lungs are the first heaven and represent the sphere of the moon, the intermediary between the two worlds...many angels....the leader of which in charge of temperate water and air. The brain is the second heaven and represents the sphere Mercury...Main angel in charge of learning to write, aquiring knowledge, and managing livelihood is Gabriel. He is the second cause of the knowledge of the people of the world.

The kidneys are the third heaven = Venus = joy/happiness. 'Appetite' is the leader of these angels. The heart is the fourth heaven = the sun = Seraphiel. He is the secondary cause of the life of the people of the world. The spleen is the fifth heaven = Mars, in charge of severity, wrath, beating, and killing. He is the LENDER {leader?} of these angels. The liver is the sixth = Jupiter = Michael = ''the cause of the provision of the inhabitants {people}. The gallbladder = seven{th} heaven = Saturn = ''in charge of taking spirits {at death} = Azrael. The animal spirit is the FOOTSTOOL and represnts the sphere of the fixed stars, since the sphere of the LURED stars is the footstool of the macrocosm.

Various seekers have searched for the nine spheres, spending a great deal of time and money, but according to Thoth, you don't need the crystal balls; you just need to draw nine concentric circles, because its just as revealing.

Another 'fact' to ponder. The relationship between copper, silver, and gold as represented within the 'golden raft of El Dorado.

"The function of Khidr as a ''person archetype'' for both Suhrawardi and Ibn Arabi is to reveal each disciple to himself...He leads each disciple to his own theophany {'Virgil'?}...because that theophany corresponds to his own 'inner heaven', to the form of his own being, to his eternal individuality...Khidr's mission consists in enabling you to attain to the 'Khidr of your being', for it is in this inner depth, in this 'prophet of your being', that springs the Water of Life at the foot of the mystic Sinai, pole of the microcosm, center of the world...And this is perhaps the secret reason for which the doctrine of Ibn Arabi was so feared by the adepts of the literal religion, of the historical faith; of the dogma imposed uniformly upon all. He who is a disciple of Khidr possesses sufficient inner strength to seek freely the teaching of all masters... " [From the book 'The World Turned Inside Out'. Mentioned elsewhere].

"A river of thoughts''. [Quote / 'pun' taken from the book by Tomberg].

A working example {i.e., in 'story' form}: ''To the west, the village was fringed by the river which looped behind the Abbey, while far away to the east, beyond the labyrinth of narrow lanes, he could just discern the grey ribbon of a motorway.'' [Page 8 'The Serpents Circle' / P. Harpur].

"Water is seen as a symbol of the maternal, the 'Great Mother', as well as the great unfathomable and mysterious well of Wisdom contained within the subconscious mind. In short, Water symbolizes the infinite realm of possibilities......Like the element of 'Fire', Water also symbolizes the ideas of transfiguration and regeneration. The direction or cardinal point assigned to Water is West. [Extract taken from the book by Cicero]. For a 'deeper' point of view try ''incarnation'' in the usual box. If only to understand it from 're-incarnation'.

The author of 'Lazarus Come Forth' defines those two same 'concepts' with the labels ''degeneration'' and '' regeneration'', [chapter 3] . There 'physical' representation [regardless of time place or culture] has always been the same throughout the course of multiple generations over thousands of years. The ebb and flow of 'tides'.

Silbury hill seen from swallowhead springs. Coincidence?


"Around the time of her feast [Bridget of Ireland] , at the beginning of February, an observer standing on the hills summit looking West, would see a swan in flight formed by the inundation of pastures in the vicinity of a U-shaped bend on the river Avon, known as the 'Swans neck'.

A Roman swan figurine used as a chariot rein guide for two horses.

As with the return of sacred waters in spring at Kennet hills, called swallow head spring, such naturalist phenomena would have been important to the geomythic beliefs of our ancestors. [Page 98, 'The Cygnus Mystery']. Recall what 'Swans' represent or are symbolic of, if only within this subject. Swallow in relation to same. Try ''spring'' and/or ''fountain'' and/or ''u-turn'' etc.

Aquae Sulis?

"The Egyptian name Isis means ''throne'' a reference to the function of the Neter as the ''seat''...The animal of Isis is the swallow." [Page 166 from the book by R. Clark].

It also within an 180 bend of a river.

Side note: ''The expression “One swallow does not a summer make, nor one fine day; similarly one day or brief time of happiness does not make a person entirely happy” is attributed to Aristotle (384 – 322 BC)..... One swallow does not make a summer, because individual birds may overshoot, arrive too early, have been blown north by accident, and they tend to retreat swiftly if conditions are harsh. The presence of two swallows might well be a sign of preliminary nesting behaviour.''

Something hinted at in story form {method?}:"Lubrin Dhu, under the high table {'upper room'?}, saw the firelight leaping on the plucked harp strings; but he was watching the pattern that the words and music had begun to weave inside his head; deep strong flowing patterns that had in them the beat of  hooves and the streaming of manes {'ribbons'?}, and above and around the horse patterns, the grace notes rising like spun clouds, like flocks of little birds wheeling and skimming above the herd. And as he watched, the longing that he had to capture the swallows flight came back on him again. Scarcely knowing that he had done so, he edged forward, out from under the table, over the bracken strewn floor towards the bare flagstones that edged the hearth. A piece of charred stick had fallen from the fire, and he picked it up and began to draw on the hearthstone the thing that he was seeing inside his head....The pattern was coming. Anyone else might have seen on the flagstone only a tangle of wavy lines and random spots and dashes, but to Lubrin, coming closer to the secret of the thing this time than he had done with the swallows, it meant what he wanted it to mean, and it was beautiful; also, in a strange sort of way, it was part of himself." [Page 23/4 'Sun Horse, Moon Horse' / Rosemary Sutcliff].

"Sutcliff was born 14 December 1920 to George Ernest Sutcliff and his wife Nessie Elizabeth, née Lawton, in East ClandonSurrey.[4] She spent her childhood in Malta and various naval bases where her father, a Royal Navy officer, was stationed. She was affected by Still's disease when she was very young, and used a wheelchair most of her life. Due to her chronic illness, Sutcliff spent most of her time with her mother from whom she learned many of the Celtic and Saxon legends that she would later expand into works of historical fiction."

Isle of Wight flag. Lozenge? Toponymy: "Place of division." and/or "The island that lifts up out of the sea." What about "multiplication?"

Hearthstone: "A flat stone forming a hearth or part of a hearth."

"It takes little imagination to people the old grey kitchen with the monastic cook and his scullions, for the great flagstones of the floor bear the marks of their feet. There is something strangely impressive in footworn stone. Nothing so humanizes an ancient building as the shallow troughs in its flagstones worn by human feet."

And/or: "You seem to wonder how I come by all the insights and secrets I possess? You often ask me about their source {'spring'?} do you not?' I nodded. ''Well then, now you know,'' he replied, as his eyes followed a swallow as it darted out over our heads in pursuit of an insect.

''Horse, fruit and crane flies are all species of the same winged insect.'' ['Tipping Point'].

"The phrase “no flies on someone” is an idiom that means the person mentioned is very quick and astute 12It is believed to have originated with reference to cattle who were so active that no flies settled on them 2The phrase is also used in Australian slang as a complimentary phrase roughly translating to “you are clever.”


Side note: Jerusalem {the 'center' of the world} was a holy sight well before the Israelites made it their own....Its a story of mans search for holiness....Before Jerusalem expanded in modern times east-west - the ancient city was founded on two mountains {'horizon' link?} - the Moriah and Mount Zion. But it all really started down there on that dry little ridge called the Ophel....

A 'gathering of ones cattle' = 'light'? An illumination of what? Beginning with a 'child'? Head of cow within that light {therefore} 'milk' link?

The Ophel Hill some believe to have its meaning in the 'Evening Star'....It had two advantages - it was steep and crucially it had a SPRING....Two stone towers found ''to protect the spring''... "It is the only spring in the area that points east to the sun. A holy significance was given to it even in those early days..." ['Jerusalem: The Making of a Holy Place' / PBS America. Episode 1].



Refresher: "These men have never sought popular approval, or numbers of followers. They are indifferent to these things, for they know how few they are in each generation who are ready for the truth, or who would recognize it, if it were presented to them.

'Swollen'? What's the remedy? Herod to enlarge.

Ophel, with the definite article ha-ophel, is a common noun known from two Ancient Semitic languages, Biblical Hebrew and Moabitic. As a place name or description it appears several times in the Hebrew Bible and once on the Mesha Stele from Moab. There is no ultimate agreement as to its exact meaning, and scholars have long been trying to deduce it from the different contexts it appears in. When used as a common noun, it has been translated as "tumors" (1 Samuel 5:9, 12; 6:5), and in a verbal form it was taken to mean "puffed up" (Habakkuk 2:4), this indicating that the root might be associated with "swelling". When referring to a place, it seems from the context to mean either hill, or fortified place, or a mixture of the two, i.e., a fortified hill, and by considering the presumed meaning of the root, it might signify a "bulging or rounded" fortification {'overhang or overlook'?}.

'Square shoulders / ROUNDED ones'? {Page 12/13 'Hatshepsut: From Queen to Pharaoh' / Metropolitan}.


And/or: ''In December 1908, the British Egyptologist W. M. Flinders Petrie discovered the intact burial of a woman {with long/narrow neck and body}, and child while excavating in western Thebes, opposite the modern city of Luxor - {'child' more than likely a girl - because of spiral 'earings' and bead 'girdle',}. Found north of the road that led to the Valley of the Kings. The grave was not elaborate, just a shallow trench cut into the rock BELOW AN OVERHANG and masked from view by a group of boulders {'Elephant Island'?}. Considering the simplicity of the burial place, the contents were of unexpected richness {'pine martin'?} and quality.'' [Page 15 'Hatshepsut' / same book].

Continued: Biblical verses in which it has been translated either as "fortified place " (tower, citadel, stronghold etc.) or "hill" are 2 Kings 5:24, 2 Chronicles 27:3 and 33:14, Isaiah 32:14, Nehemiah 3:26 and 11:21, and Micah 4:8. On the Mesha Stele, named for the king of Moab who erected it, Mesha says: "I built Q-R-CH-H (? Karhah), the wall of ye'arim [forests], and the wall of ophel and I built its gates and I built its towers." Here ophel is commonly translated as "citadel". [Wiki].

Side note: "Mars is the first 'superior' planet, lying outside the orbit of the earth...It appears to grow in size and power as it advances towards the earth and is at its closest when the Earth is between the Sun and Mars. It then appears to retreat until it reaches its furthest distance from the Earth, on the other side of the Sun. Known as the god Ares by the Greeks, the Roman month of MARCH {when the Sun is in the sign of Aries} was named after this planet." ['Mapping the Psyche' / Vol. 1 / Clare Martin].

REFRESHER: Something to ponder on: "I have another poem I would like to read. This one is by Rabindranath Tagore, from the Flight of Swans: The wind, you have made free therefore it lightly obeys your command; but me, you have loaded with burdens, with them I toil on. Passing from 'death' to death. Slowly I free myself from them, till empty handed I come ready to serve you''

"I want to use this idea, 'Till empty handed I come, ready to serve you' to talk about the cycle of Saturn and its meaning. Because Saturn's orbit is roughly 28-30 years in length, and every seven to eight years there is a very strong Saturnian energy present, when in order to go forwards, we may need to look back {hindsight?}, like Janus, whom we mentioned."

Gemini/Cancer {tortoise?}. ''Like other turtles, tortoises have been around at least 225 million years. A marine turtle that eons ago learned to live on land, the tortoise traded fins for short {weak or strong?} legs, and the plates on its back gradually increased in size as a defence and grew to form a uses its bladder as a reservoir for storing water, and by digging a trench inside the earth escapes the blazing desert sun or hibernates for months below the frost zone." [Page 192 'The Book of Symbols: Reflections on Archetypal Images / Taschen]. Question. Mumbo jumbo or an intuitive SENSE of something - in the natural SENSE of the 'word'? Try ''tortoise'' .

  And/or: "Feelings increase in intensity by contagious and repetitive actions....And just as what is achieved in Cancer {the power of the ego} becomes the foundation of the subsequent phase of 'individual' growth {from Leo to Sagittarius}, likewise all truly 'social' activities develop out of what is achieved in Scorpio {the power of the group, including the simplest group of all: man-woman couple}. These social activities come to a consummation in Pisces, the sign of 'social' feelings and the symbol of time fulfilled. Here the cycle ends, but the end can be the foundation for a new beginning and the new departure in Aries must naturally come out of something. This ''something'' is the seed, the Last day of the preceding cycle Pisces, the pre-germinal or prenatal stage of all types of New Life, the act of stepping over the threshold of the New Life." [Page 181, 'The Zodiac as the Universal Matrix'].

A working example: ''The woundings of our lives can cause the withdrawal of substance, the leaching of our spirits {'leak at the seams'?}....'Wisdom through suffering', Sophocles said.....for it is the trials of wounding that all our immature or shadowed parts rise to meet us.....When i graduated from high school, my lessor selves - jubilant and inflated from a star-strewn adolescence - were just about ready for a spectacular fall....My college career began in one of the heavenly antechambers but proceeded gently downward, with occasional slight upturns until it plunged headlong into the most complete misery i had ever known. From this nadir, i rose again to a safe harbour in purgatory {'middle way'?}, until i finally graduated into a kind of redemption....but not before wounding had taken its toll....I discovered that the wounding pathos of our own local stories contains the seed of healing and of transformation....All myth, in fact, has wounding at its core....''

Something extra: ''The Greek word kentauros is generally regarded as being of obscure origin.[3] The etymology from ken + tauros, 'piercing bull', was a euhemerist suggestion in Palaephatus' rationalizing text on Greek mythology, On Incredible Tales (Περὶ ἀπίστων), which included mounted archers from a village called Nephele eliminating a herd of bulls that were the scourge of Ixion's kingdom.[4] Another possible related etymology can be "bull-slayer." [Wiki].

'Three' or 'four'?

A work in progress: ''Another useful analogy to the modern psychological Gnostic process is the fourfold structure {'sixteen'?} of the clasical Greek drama: agon or contest; pathos or defeat; threnos, or lamentation; and theophania, or a divinely accomplished redemption....It is only the fourth and last that may be described as pleasant or joyous, while the other three are characterized by struggle, defeat and mourning.'' [Page 40 'The Gnostic Jung: and the Seven Sermons to the Dead' / S. Hoeller].

A working example: ''Hathor's fourfold nature at reliefs, in texts, and especially in the sistrum columns...each with 4 faces. They also compressed a solar 'lifetime' into 4 phases of 'birth' , 'life', 'fruitfulness', and 'old age/burial'...represented with the 4 Ka's in the ''Pure place'' where Nut adorns the ceiling.''

From a different perspective: ''Alte Burg is a large Celtic hilltop fortification, or hillfort, that may have been used as a cult or assembly site for the regional population. It is located 9 kilometers from a major settlement of the Hallstatt and early La Tène period, the Heuneburg. Alte Burg lies in the municipality of Langenenslingen in Baden-Württemberg, Germany.''


And/or: ''From the point of view of the universe, people are like mayflies; but from the point of view of the Way, even the universe is an evanescent reflection. Only the true essence {'bit'?} of the original spirit transcends the primal organization and is above it. Vitality and energy degenerate along with the universe {E-W?}, but the original spirit is still there {S-N?} - this is the infinite. The production of the universe all derives from this. If learners can just preserve the original spirit, they live transcendently outside of yin and yang. They are not within the three realms. This is possible only by 'seeing'' essence. This is what is called the original face.'' [Page 13 'The Secret of the Golden Flower' / T. Cleary].

''A special place in hell'. Question. For the Germans or Euro? {edited 8.2.19}.

REFRESHER: "In Scorpio the individual is forced to touch bottom. He must be willing to surrender his individual uniqueness and individual prerogatives. As he does so, he descends in consciousness into the common root of the group. He learns to live in terms of humanity as a whole. In a sense this is symbolised by Christ's descent into 'hell'. Through such a descent the human depths are 'redeemed' - that is, they are made significant. They are given an individualised meaning and a conscious value by this descent of the individual...He is like a tree with a powerful tap-root, able to draw sustenance from the hidden springs of life...which are the foundation of human behaviour...Most individuals may go under, suffering and being overwhelmed, and failing to experience the 'miracle' in Scorpio. What this miracle is can be gathered from the epic recently written by Antoine de Saint-Exupery - 'Flight to Arras. It is the revelation of humanity to the individual {'grace' link?}...In this identification the individual finds his destiny and purpose. What he has gained as an individual he offers as a sacrificial gift to his and through which the total of reality of humanity is revealed..."

"Aquarius was considered {before the discovery of Uranus}, as 'ruled' by Saturn. The Saturn which rules Aquarius and the Jupiter which rules Pisces are, however, expressions of the beginnings of human evolution. They rule over the 'Golden Age' of mankind, that is, the prenatal period and earliest 'childhood' of humanity. Saturn in Capricorn is the 'seed' which closes a cycle; Saturn in Aquarius is the same seed opening the new cycle. The actual and active beginning of the new cycle occurs only as Mars {Aries} tears through the Saturnian seed-envelope and 'germination' occurs..." [Page 172 - same book].

A working example: ''The map on the southern panel could well reflect a specific conjunction of planets in 1534 BCE around the longitude of Sirius. The four planets Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury and Venus are relatively easily recognizable. The planet Mars is not included in the actual grouping and at first sight seems to be missing in the map. However, one explanation is that Mars is represented in the Senenmut map as an empty boat in the west. This may refer to the fact that Mars was retrograde and was not with the other planets (indeed, being in the west in the 1534 BCE conjunction). The reason for the boat being empty is perhaps in this backward movement (a well known phenomenon to the Egyptians) the position of Mars was not considered to be concrete''

In number symbolism 49/50 equates to 'lower' as 99/100 does to 'higher'. From a 'Jubilee' [Hebrew] to the 'Great Year' [Greek/Sumerian]. As explained in such publications as 'The Sirius Mystery' .Mentioned elsewhere. Especially chapters 4 and 5.

"The 'trapped asteroid' or 'planetoid' Chiron was first discovered in 1977 and remains a misfit in the solar system. Originating from the Kuiper Belt, which lies outside the orbit of Pluto, it is not known how long this visitor will remain with us. With an extremely elliptical orbit of 49-51 years, Chiron's astrological function appears to be to link the outer planets with the 'old world' planets, since it fluctuates almost as far from the Sun as Uranus, and yet it passes within the orbital sphere of Saturn." [Page 4-5 'Mapping the Psyche' / Vol.1].

Of particular interest on Dendera's round zodiac is a male figure, his {'strong'?} legs apart as if walking, [or 'striving' ] who sports a ceremonial tail and holds in his right hand a pear-shaped {pine?} mace.

Apophis being the Egyptian equivalent of that same 'negative' aspect. As 'speculated' on within 'The Hiram Key', by way of the Hyksos kings. Some say a link to the Babylonian Tiamat, 'goddess' of the oceans who mated with the 'god' of fresh water,[keys]. Think about it, especially in relation to Marduk, an aspect within the same. Dominance prevails... 'lower' over 'higher'. The 'Dragon' rules, [key].

Mother of Dragons? {Game of Thrones}.

Together with "The Dragon is an old glyph for 'Astral light' [primordial principle] which is the wisdom of Chaos", [page 73 'The Secret Doctrine'. Mentioned within]. Final link to the word 'lucifer'...the light bringer, a link to 'dawn' or the morning star.[Wikipedia]. That representation of a 'negative' [or unconscious,i.e.,unknown quantity], still has within it, a positive potential.

That negative however within Egyptian culture, has the positive overcoming the negative,[link to ma'at. Purpose of]... that u-turn made by way of 'Mehen' and 'Wadjet', that became; for the Egyptians; that ultimate positive symbol the 'Uraeus' and its relevance to the word Kingship. Those Twelve 'heads' that Apophis 'consumes' but are freed when Apophis is 'vanquished', [] way of those positive aspects represented by 'Mehen' and 'Wadjet' within the whole, i.e., Apophis [by way of 'Uraeus']... gives clues as to Freemasons symbolism of the 'legend' of Hiram Abif and its purpose with the candidate in mind.


Where have you seen it before?

Refresher: "The ancient ones of early eastern Christianity taught that, in relation to intruding thoughts, we should be so vigilant that as soon as they ''show there heads, like a serpent appearing through a hole, we must cut it off''! This is a potent use of the 'stop exercise' which is also meant to halt the entry and influence of ''I's'' that seek to claim our identity. The more you live in a more quiet inner place {an inner sanctuary} where features {negative ones?} cannot take over, the more you will see the difference between passing thoughts and feelings and your deeper self." ['Wisdom of the 4th Way'].

Shabaka Stone. The text first declares the political and theological supremacy of the Memphite god Ptah, the king of both Upper and Lower Egypt, and the creator of the Ennead. The inscription then describes how Horus, as a manifestation of Ptah, initially rules Lower Egypt while his rival Set rules Upper Egypt. The first line of the stone presents the fivefold royal titulary of the king: "The living Horus: Who prospers the Two Lands; the Two Ladies: Who prospers the Two Lands; the King of Upper and Lower Egypt: Neferkare; the Son of Re: [Shabaka], beloved of Ptah-South-of-His-Wall, who lives like Re forever."[14] The first three names emphasize the king's manifestation as a living god (especially of the falcon-headed Horus, patron god to the Egyptian kings), while the latter two names (the king's throne name and birth name) refer to Egypt's division and unification.[6]
The second line, a dedicatory introduction, states that the stone is a copy of the surviving contents of a worm-eaten papyrus Shabaka found as he was inspecting the Great Temple of Ptah.''

Remember what 'three'; is in the main; always symbolic of, i.e., "In order to follow an esoteric path it is not necessary to make a quantitative study of the doctrine; it is enough to know the essentials, which are centered on the nature of 'god' and the nature of man. The symbolism of the elementary numbers is always enlightening, and in this case it is the number three, which holds as it were the keys to understanding the relationship between the 'creator' and his human image. The presence of certain triads in the world, such as that of the primary colors is the proof of a triplicity in the Divine nature itself, the supreme 'Archetype' of all that exists". [Chapter five. 'The Eleventh Hour']. Recall those 'three' boulders at the lowest level at the temple on Elephant Island. Those three aspects [and what they represent] in relation to Lower / higher.

bbbbSide note: {something hinted at}: "After eating and exchanging impressions {those first ones?}, it seemed clear that each of us had been naturally drawn to a different section of the figure. Bedewyr to the right staff, Cai to the left; Gwalchmai to the very center torso, and I to the head. This unusual {'peculiar'?} difference seemed extraordinary to me, but Merlyn thought otherwise. He said it was the simple result of our being 'various aspects of the same thing' which was exactly why we were brought here in the first place." [Extract from one of the books by D. Monroe].

Continued: Analogy; with the same intent..."On an island there lived three hermits. They were so simple that the only prayer they used was: ''We art three; thou art three - have mercy on us!" Great 'miracles' were manifested during this naive prayer." [Extract from the book 'Autobiography of a Yogi' from a folk tale by Leo Tolstoy]. For a further head scratch - try ''grace'' [link to ''mercy''] before those first impressions tell the ''lower'' something else. Then try ''miracle'' - same reason.

Spots or stripes? Pinky or perky?

And/or {i.e.,as seen from a different perspective - a different 'point/'angle' of view'} - "In Stephen Sondheim's musical 'Sunday in the Park with George', which is about the pointillist painter, George Seurat, the creation of beauty was described as a 'connection process'. Seurat was a master at organizing and connecting colored dots, creating beautiful images that humble us to this day. Sondheim reminds us of the importance of this process with his simple lyrics: 'Connect, George, connect'... In the process of reading this book, you will take part in a connective healing journey. Your mind and heart will be extended and united as Dr Pearl connects the dots of his life...The key to understanding this {new?} level of healing is the prefix ''re'' - i.e.,re-attending, re-connecting, re-regulating, re-ordering healing... " [From the book 'The Reconnection' by Dr E. Pearl].

Side note: ''The Sondheim Theatre (formerly the Queen's Theatre) is a West End theatre located in Shaftesbury Avenue on the corner of Wardour Street in the City of Westminster, London. It opened as the Queen's Theatre on 8 October 1907, as a twin to the neighbouring Hicks Theatre (now the Gielgud Theatre) which had opened ten months earlier. Both theatres were designed by W. G. R. Sprague. The theatre was Grade II listed by English Heritage in June 1972.[1]

In 2019 the theatre's name was changed from the Queen's to the Sondheim Theatre (after Stephen Sondheim) after a 20 week refurbishment. The theatre reopened on 18 December 2019. The original plan was to name the venue the Central Theatre. However, after lengthy debate, it was named the Queen's Theatre and a portrait of Queen Alexandra was hung in the foyer.[2]

The first production at the Queen's Theatre was a comedy by Madeleine Lucette Ryley called The Sugar Bowl. Although it was poorly received and ran for only 36 performances, the theatre received glowing reviews. The Stage on 10 October 1907 described the theatre as:

A two-tier house, the Queen's holds about 1200 persons, representing some £300 in money. The colour scheme of the walls and roof is white and gold, while green is the hue of the carpets, hangings and upholstery, and of the very charming velvet tableau curtain.

Mehen snake game. No one knows how it was played. Very similar to the Phaistos Disc. Enlarged elsewhere. To get as close to an answer define those keys i.e., pairs of lions {Aker}. Pillars and 12 counters {zodiac}. From the outside in? Central to a 'Theme'?

Review: "In the Book of What is in the Dwat, the incarnation of the principle of light, stands in the boats cabin during the first six hours of the night, that is during the descent. For the reascent he stands in the coils of the serpent Mehen, whose name means 'spiralic', and who plays a role in the rebirth of the solar globe. Putting together such teachings, one can conceive that the 'sun's' regeneration occurs by virtue of the flux of spiral currents which ceaselessly precipitate and coagulate the impalpable cosmic substance...At the eleventh hour the regenerated solar globe is represented, for the first and only time in this Book, at the prow of a boat {Part 3}. It is drawn towards the Eastern gate of the sky by Mehen...In the twelfth hour in the middle register...This is the books apotheosis and can be understood in several ways. Physically it is the glorious rebirth of the 'solar' globe, and is therefore the triumph of light over darkness...Spiritually...through multiple purifications, transforms the densest matter {Sarsen stones?} into a more subtle one {'Blue' ones?}...the conquest of shadowless light." [Extract from the book 'Egyptian Mysteries' - in relation to tombs at Thebes. Mentioned elsewhere].

Try ''Pure'' in all its forms. As a means....?

And/or: "All the prows {of boats} found within the tomb of Tut - point to the West." ['King Tut's Last Mission'' / Channel 5 / 08/02/2020].

Abydos in relation to Thebes. Question. Where would ''shadow'' be represented? Or what would it be represented by? Don't forget 'Part 3,' i.e.,try ''ship'' and/or ''plough'' and/or ''spiral''.

"Ploughing is repetitive work, furrow after furrow, furlong [a furrows length] after furlong. But now its time to stop work for a while, 'elevenses' as the English say, the time 11a.m.,called in Malay tulih tenggala, ''when the plough is idle''. [Quote taken from 'The Book of Babel'. Mentioned elsewhere].

11th Hour?

Goat on a stump {'Nanny'}?

Apply {understand?} all the above to define the following:  "...The Sun is its 'father' the Moon its 'mother', the 'wind' hath carried it in its belly, the earth is its nurse. The 'father' of all perfection in the whole world is here. Its force or power is entire if it be converted into earth. Separate thou the 'earth' from the fire, the subtle from the gross sweetly with great industry. It ascends from the earth to the heaven and again it descends to the earth and receives the force of things 'superior' and 'inferior'. By this means you shall have the glory {''grace''?} of the whole world and thereby all obscurity shall 'fly' from you. Its force is above all force. For it vanquishes every subtle thing and penetrates every solid thing. So was the world created...Hence i am called Hermes Trismegist, having the three parts the philosophy of the 'whole' world. That which i have said of the operation of the 'Sun' is accomplished and ended." " ['Emerald Tablet].

Follow the title to define {keys?} - in its broader {worldly?} context.

The 'nurse' of Bran Stark? {Game of Thrones}. After all - she can tell a 'bloody' good story can't she? [Series 1. Episode 3].

A {working?} example: "The furious fighting {''struggle''?} that continues in Book 11 gives possibly the most comprehensive conceptual chart of the constellations of the night sky in the entire Iliad. Constellations identified with Greek warriors are: Leo, Perseus, Argo Navis, Lyra, Eridanus, Orhiuchus and Bootes - and those of the Trojans are Ursa Major, Virgo, Orion, Aquarius, Equuleus, and Serpens Caput..." ['Homer's Secret Iliad' / Page 111].

''A long, long time ago, Don McLean says his original lyrics reveal 'everything there is to know'. " Coincidence or a meaningful one? Try ''star'' and/or ''stellar''. And/or: " The grey matter of the brain is actually the veil of the Spiritual substance of the stars." ['The Zelator']. And/or: "born from the stella Virgo, who in the stella mythology is the Virgin corn goddess." Same book. Try ''wheat/barley/corn''.

Manger: "to eat" or "to chew."

And/or "The eleven pairs of horses to which Homer refers {i.e.,Pandarus,i.e.'In my father's stable there are eleven excellent chariots, fresh from the builder, quite new, with cloths spread over them; and by each of them there stand a pair of horses, champing barley and rye'} - are the twenty two {11+11?} stars of Sagittarius {the astronomical home of Pandarus and his father} and contiguous Corona Australis {Pandarus quiver}. The 'barley' and 'rye' they are eating are common Homeric codewords and indicate that the stars are set against the background of the Milky Way; the chariots cannot be seen for they are covered with 'cloths' {'wollen' ones?}. It will never be known who made the first study of this corner of the sky, but they were expert enough to observe that twenty two stars could be 'paired' according to their brightness or magnitude..." [Same book].

Sheep decans?

Question. To which of the two {i.e.,Greek / Trojan} does the constellation Sagittarius 'belong' to. And why?

Question 2. Any relevance to the 22 letters of say, the Hebrew alphabet?

Side note: "Achilles {'Canis Major'} has a trio of fine horses...Two of the horses, Xanthus and Balius are 'immortal' and mark stars in the Milky Way. Pedasus is 'mortal' and, although said to be every bit as as good as the immortal pair, his star is just outside the Milky Way. The configuration of these makes the familiar triangle of one of Homer's chariots." [Same book].

N.B. ''Transcendent third'' link - in reverse - i.e.,top/down. 'See' it? Understanding that defines ''horses'' in relation to say, ''bulls''.

Refresher:"This is what the legend means when it says that each star is a soul. This is the meaning of the five-pointed star, symbol of man..." [Her-Bak']. Try ''Krishna'' for something extra to ponder on.

Something extra: ''On July 4, 1187, the Crusaders were defeated definitively in the Horns of Hattin. The Holy Land returned to the hands of the Muslims. Christian holy places started falling into oblivion, and their destiny was abandonment and deterioration.

INNER/OUTER: Tree of 'life' or 'knowledge' or does it matter? One and same thing? Question. Would those planks become a good 'foundation' if laid in the horizontal? "Breath" to enlarge.

Manger: "to eat" or "to chew."

One hundred years after the Muslim conquest, a German Dominican friar called Burchard of Mount Zion, passed by the plain of Gennesaret {'Garden of the Prince'}. He testified that the Magdalene’s house was preserved in “Magdalum”. Burchard was able to find the house and visit it, but he does not mention the state he found it. A decade later, in 1294, Ricoldus de Monte Crucis left in writing the impression he took when he saw the church of Magdala: “We arrived at Magdalum, the village of Mary Magdalene, next to Lake Gennesaret. There we cried and mourned because we found a beautiful church that, although was not destroyed, had been transformed into a stable. There we sang and preached about the Gospel of the Magdalene”. We must confess that Ricoldus’ text is not entirely clear, and perhaps, instead of “transformed into a stable”, we should translate it to “blocked with planks”. In any case, the reaction of these pilgrims confirms that the Church of the Magdalene was already in such a state, that ripped away tears from those present.'' ['A Church in SAD Condition' / Magdala / Israel].

'Primacy of Peter': N/W shore of Galilee. Red tiles. 'Wattle' to enlarge.

1294 will be the year in which, for the last time, a Church in Magdala is mentioned. It will be necessary to wait until 2014 to see again Christian pilgrims raising their voices to God in a church in Magdala. And this time they will no longer sing dirges, but hymns of JOY.''

N.B. ''Prince'' = 'elephant' link?

And/or: ''The name may originate from the Hebrew word kinnor ("harp" or "lyre") - which the lake's shape resembles. It has also been called the Lake of Gennesaret or the Sea of Gennesaret ( Luke 5:1) after the name of a small fruitful plain which lies on its western side.''

"Tabgha (Arabicالطابغةal-TabighaHebrewעין שבעEin Sheva which means "spring of seven") is an area situated on the north-western shore of the Sea of Galilee in Israel and a depopulated Palestinian village. It is traditionally accepted as the place of the miracle of the multiplication of the loaves and fishes (Mark 6:30-46) and the fourth resurrection appearance of Jesus (John 21:1-24) after his Crucifixion. The village population was expelled in 1948 during Operation Broom....The site's name is derived from the Greek name Heptapegon ("seven springs"). The name was later shortened to "Tapego", and was eventually changed to "Tabgha" in Arabic."

Square and triangle. 'Three and four'?

Ophiuchus. '13TH' constellation. {Thirteen}

A change of pace; but along a similar path {i.e.,'Freemasonry'}: "The genuine 'secrets' of the order, we are told, have been lost, and substituted secrets are in their place until such time as the true ones will be found." Together with " The stylised death and resurrection of the candidate is the act of making one a 'master' mason." [Emphasis this readers.Chapter one.' Hiram Key' /Knight and Lomas]. Those Twelve heads because of that positive 'effort' are now 'released'. Apophis has been vanquished. Positive over negative, by way of those three aspects, of the now higher self...from which a new awareness 'dawns'. Represented by the morning star...Sirius, [the dog star]. Chapter one, same book. Something 'lost' is now found. I.e., No scrolls will be 'found' under Rosslyn chapel, because that ''understanding'' becomes ''that which was lost is now found''. Question. Which came first...The 'Constellations' or the Mythology associated with them, or the intention of both.... and why?


Question. ''Serpent'' = 'middle ground' ?

"There is a further maverick item concerning the Pleiades. As already mentioned, this constellation consists of six readily discernible stars and one considerably fainter. Particularly in Europe and Asia there are many different legends which 'account' for this situation. A typical story tells how one of the sisters lost her 'virginity', and in her shame hid her light from her companions. P. E. and G. D. Considine write as follows in this connection: 'Of the seven stars one is at present distinctly fainter than the other six, and there are many myths regarding this so called lost Pleiad. In fact the myths occur in so many ancient literature's that there is a well established theory that at one time all seven of the stars were approximately of the same brightness.' Other authors add 'It is remarkable that so many nations speak of them as seven sisters when only six are clearly visible. All the legends therefore have a postscript to account for the missing seventh." [Chapter 4 from the book by S. Gooch]. Recall what ''virginity'' implies.

Side note: "The hebdomad is the only number within the decad {apart from the monad} which neither generates nor is generated by another number within the decad; hence it is called by Pythagoreans ''virgin, not born of mother''.....Moreover, the hebdomad consisting of the dimensions and the four limits makes manifest corporeality and organic life. The limits are point, line, plane, solid; the dimensions are length, breadth, depth." [Page 186 'Alexandria' Vol 3. / D. Fideler].

"...the Virgin Mary was venerated by the medieval church and is still veneraterd by Catholics today, as virgin in our modern sense of the word, even though it is recognised by tradition that she bore carnal children to Joseph after the virgin birth of her Eldest Son, and is also hailed in Latin hymns as spouse as well as mother of her son. These things would form a flagrant contradiction or require an impossible miracle, if they were to be taken as true on the objective plane. If, however, we recognise religious concepts as symbolic and interpret these contradictions psychologically we realise that the term ''virginity'' must refer to a quality, to a subjective state, a psychological attitude, not to a physiological or external fact." [Chapter 8, from the book by the author M. Esther Harding]. Put ''quality'' in the box.

The real question however that the reader should ask of him/her self is the usual one.
